Went here with group of people. Everyone found something to their liking. Smoked sandwiches were impressive. Poutine was average. The cheesecake was humongous. Staff were good.

Great typical place for Montréal. A menu with wide variety of dishes. The smoked beef sandwiches are great as well as the beef specialties. Service is very good and waiters take personal care of their guests. The sweets are very nice.

Enjoyed a good, quick (not rushed) dinner. Went because Reubens is rated as a top smoked meat restaurant- I’d say it met expectations. Mind you I have yet to eat a bad smoked meat sandwich in Montreal. Service was good. Atmosphere was good. Prices were...More

Inviting decor, friendly staff, large menu variety, and delicious smoked meat sandwich. The sandwich alone, minus the platter, is not on the menu! But ask for it, and they will provide. Walk down the stairs and take a trip back in time. Good value.

The $17.99 smoked meat sandwich is definitely not worth it. Meat was flavourless, fries were cold and coleslaw was boring. This is by far the worst meal I’ve had in a long time. Seriously go somewhere else it’s just not worth it. Complained to the...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

In Montreal, we used public transportation and walking exclusively. However, there are a lot of public parking and street parking around.

They are owned by the same family. The steakhouse made a change and added the supper menu, where the deli did not. If i were to chose I would take the steakhouse, great food and great staff
